Climate change is one of the severe challenge the world is facing today. The problem of climate change induced by humans came first into force and drew the attention of the scientists and policy makers when Inter Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established. For achieving the objectives of the study primary data was used. To analyse the factors influenced the adoption of adaptation strategies Binary Logit Model and Garrett’s ranking technique was used. Relevancy Rating Technique was employed to ascertain the suggestions made by sample farmers to mitigate the ill effects of climate change. The study reveals that the farmers have initiated different adaptation measures (10 farm and 8 income management strategies) to mitigate the effects of climate change and initiated subsidiary enterprises and also the farmers have felt that providing early warning signals and creating awareness on appropriate adaptation technologies are more relevant and important than creating awareness on organic farming technologies and providing incentives on green manuring. This is a good trend and it has to be supported by organizing training programmes by development departments. In order to retain the farmers in their occupation a fixed source of income need to be provided.

Key words: Climate change, Ill effects, Management strategies and Socio-economic factors
